It's readily available, in the store, at Kroger as well as ghee.
I've never actually looked for duck fat. A quick search shows me the
local Publix carries jarred duck fat. I can't think of a thing I'd use
it for. I've bought pre-roasted half ducks from the freezer case on
occasion. Quite tasty!
I spied it last year on a shelf at Kroger while perusing the sunflower, safflower,
peanut oils, etc. Right there it was in a pint jar and next to it was
ghee, also in
a pint jar. I *think* I've seen beef tallow there as well.
I've seen jars of ghee, sure. I don't pay attention to different types
of jarred fats. Really, buying duck fat doesn't interest me. Not does
storing a jar of leftover bacon grease for cooking eggs or whatever. I
know lots of people do but I am not one of them. Oh well. I don't
actually use all that much oil/fat when I cook. It's not a plan, simply
the way things work out. :)
You're missing out. I strain the bacon grease into a mason jar and pop
it into the fridge (although it would keep fine on the counter). When
you cook bacon, what do you do with the grease? You can't put it down
the drain... or at the least, you really shouldn't.
I'm not missing anything other than clogged arteries. I certainly don't
put bacon grease or any oil down the drain. I do the same thing with
bacon grease as I do with the fat from pan-frying hamburgers, etc. Or
any cooking oil, for that matter. I pour it in a large empty plastic
container that once contained ground coffee and stash it at the bottom
of the freezer. I remove the contents from the container when the
container is almost full and it goes out with the trash. I do re-use
the container. ;)
Why don't you put that cooking fat out for the birds and other
critters? We mix cooking fat with wild bird seed and put it outside
for birds. Our cooking fat never goes in the trash. I thought you
knew better, and here I thought you cared about the birds, but
obviously like most people your caring is all pretend. You throw the
cooking fat in the trash, la di dah, fuck the birds! Winter is
coming, we feed the birds and all critters. We'd much rather a possom
or a skunk eat our scraps than put anything edible in the trash. In
cold weather deer love banana peels, citrus peels, apple cores and
other veggie parings. Nothing edible ever goes in our trash.
